ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — City officials are seeking feedback from the community for improving the portion of the Silver Avenue Bicycle Boulevard that runs from Yale SE west to the Paseo Del Bosque Trail, a five-mile trek that connects the University of New Mexico/Central New Mexico Community College area, Presbyterian Hospital, Downtown and Old Town.
A project team, consisting of representatives of the city and the Albuquerque-based civil engineering firm Bohannan Huston Inc., made presentations to the Greater Albuquerque Bicycling Advisory Committee and to the public last month, part of an information gathering phase of the study focusing on current issues along the corridor and potential conceptual improvements.
“We’ve got a team of engineers and planners looking at this,” said Aaron Sussman, a planner with Bohannan Huston Inc., during a public meeting at the Special Collections Library on Thursday. “We’re looking at challenges along this corridor. We’re looking at them from multiple perspectives, not just an engineering perspective.”
